Lisa Berry-Waite

PhD Candidate in History, University of Exeter

I am a third year PhD candidate in History at the University of Exeter and the recipient of a Leverhulme Trust studentship to work with Professor Richard Toye and Dr David Thackeray on the research project, ‘The Age of Promises: manifestos, election addresses and political representation’. My research focuses on the parliamentary election campaigns of women candidates in Britain 1918-1931, with a particular emphasis on candidate's election addresses. Before starting my PhD at Exeter, I worked as a Historical Researcher for a Member of Parliament.

In 2017 I competed a Master's degree in History (with distinction) at the University of Reading, focusing on modern British political and gender history. I was awarded a first-class Bachelor’s degree in History and Politics in 2016 from the University of Reading.
